I probably should have used quotes from the start..
I didnt have any issue with the actual feedback you gave him. that was fine.
Now Twiddle can do this all day, every day, no problem.... or Twiddle could look in a newspaper under the classified section and you can get you what's known as a Playstation 3. Now it's not gonna be new, but it'll prolly come wit like 20 games that other people already opened and played to make sure it's fun.
Then you got like $1400 left over so you can go all across the country stopping ice cream trucks. Buy 6 piece nuggets, don't eat 6 eat 3, throw the other 3 out the window; you don't give a @#%^ cuz you got money like that!
Make a pimp decision...
Had I used quotes you would have known I was refering to this post, not the semi helpfull one. so hey thats my fault. But in this post you sure do assume its for FFXIV as you aim for the PS3 purchase, so no you never asked him before you started with the crap.
I get that alot of people come here for build questions regarding FFXIV, but twiddle has been around for a minute, so maybe he assumed from previous posts like the ones you mention about builds that you guys know what you're talking about. and against what you said, you guys actually do know what you're talking about. this is all an assumption here, but you know better than anyone that thats ok!
you say you asked intent but only well into your second post and after you said:
Making a pimp decision means saving yourself the 1400 bucks you were going to blow on a PC that will run XIV on medium settings and instead buying a PS3(you might already have one) and waiting til 2.0 comes out. What you spend your money on is your prerogative, but you're tossing money away on expensive components that don't increase your performance in XIV.
so again alot of assumption before you actually started to be of any use.
so to add some amount of opinion to the actualy thread..
Twiddle, cut a few hundred off the MOBO price and either save the cash or put it towards a better single GPU setup, or even just use the saving to justify the SSD pricetag. the system overall looks solid not only for FFXIV in its current state, but current PC gaming in general.
